* Mr. VideoGame/GameAndWatch definitely qualifies based on his portrayal in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games, seeing that he is an anthropomorphic... something. And two-dimensional.

* The behemoth in TheBible: Job 40:15-24 describes some large animal said to eat grass an live near a river. Most scholars believe said behemoth was either a hippopotamus or a water buffalo. Although the bit about having a tail like a cedar tree leads some to believe it's a sauropod dinosaur of some kind.

Many are either {{Ridiculously Cute Critter}}s or UglyCute Critters. Compare the WaddlingHead and {{Cephalothorax}}. See also certain PettingZooPeople and LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy.

** A good number of recurring enemies count as well. Waddle Dees are shaped like Kirby, but lack a mouth and have faces resembling monkeys. Scarfies are flying orange blobs with ears and smiley faces that turn into cyclopses if you anger them. Waddle Doos are Waddle Dees, but with a giant eyeball where their face should be. And that's just a few of them!



* Many ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' are viewed as this, but a lot can be traced back to at least one real life species. Others, however, cannot, and have no clear basis beyond being "weird".

Added DiffLines:

* ''Videogame/AHatInTime'': The Conductor doesn't really look like any creature out there, with a face that looks like a cartoonish, eyeless dog-dragon-axolotl thingy with a really big mouth full of sharp teeth. Made rather funny by the fact the chapter he's in, which features DuelingMovies between his own and DJ Grooves (a clear penguin), is called Battle of the Birds, while the Conductor himself clearly doesn't look like ''any'' avian except maybe a sharp-toothed [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Woodstock]]. Generally, the fans agree that his species is "Bird(?)".

Added DiffLines:

* Fee and Foo from ''WesternAnimation/HarveyBeaks'', two red-furred human-like creatures in a WorldOfFunnyAnimals. [[WordOfGod C.H. Greenblatt]] has alternated between referring them as gremlins or imps, so most fans believe them to be one or the other.

** What about Bulbasaur and it's evolutions? Is it a toad? A lizard? A dinosaur? A cat? Bulbasaur's Japanese name [[LampshadeHanging even translates to "isn't it strange?"]]
** Nevertheless, it has the king of this trope, Eevee. Thanks to an UnstableGeneticCode, it has at least ''eight'' evolutions, and all of them are as indeterminate as it is. WordOfGod says the original Eevee is inspired by a fox; probably [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fennec_fox a Fennec]] -- compare: [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1195139/Gotta-catch-The-Pok-mon-cubs-receive-public-showing-Tokyo-Zoo.html Fennec pups]] and [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_t3RDd4xvt5Q/SpbuPwFdBqI/AAAAAAAAE_I/tycl5Ot67W0/s320/pikachu.jpg Pikachu]].
** Lugia, a gigantic dragon-bird-monster-thing, has been stated to be this via WordOfGod.

* The main character in "Moom" which is currently the second animated short by Creator/TonkoHouse pretty much resembles a Literature/{{Cheburashka}} but much cuter.
